Skip to comments.An ancient textile factory? (New discoveries push human technologies back to the "earliest times")

A recent report of an ancient textile facility, of sorts, is turning heads. Sifting through the debris on a cave floor in the Republic of Georgia, scientists recently discovered evidence that the early cave dwellers processed textiles in the cave. While searching for ancient pollen grains, they found tiny flax fibers in the dirt. Some of these fibers were woven, some were cut, and some were dyed black, gray, turquoise, or pink. They also discovered evidence that these people were processing fur (for clothing) and animal hides.
What is surprising about the find is that this was supposedly happening 30,000 years ago (according to the C-14 dates obtained from several organic samples taken from the dirt). This is prior to the advent of civilization in the evolutionary history of man. This is even prior to the invention of farming. How can primitive cave men have advanced textile processing skills?...

Now, about that 6,000 year ago thing ~ ?
“Some of these fibers were woven, some were cut,
and some were dyed black, gray, turquoise, or pink.
They also discovered evidence that these people
were processing fur...”
Factory was closed - work was outsourced to neanderthals.
The basic reality wrt rc dating is this: It is fairly accurate back to around 2500 years ago. Nonetheless beginning several thousand years ago there was a series of catastrophes, the most major being the flood and the most recent occurring around the time of the Trojan war, in which the entire nature of the solar system was altered, and all of the assumptions which rc dating uses go straight out the window past about the time of the Trojan war.
I hope they were careful about their CO2 emissions....
It seems the more we find out about early man, the more intelligent, and technologically savvy he becomes. Or in the words of the article, “this report of early textile technology suggests very strongly that man has always been intelligent, industrious, and inventive.” As such, the trend is definitely in the direction of biblical creation.
PS Do you have any research links that date human cave paintings to 70,000 years ago???
Why did they put that dumb picture of fabric in the article and then say it wasn’t the fibers found?
The comparison is to the subject ~ textiles, not the items in the list to each other.
There is tons of it.. you just have your fingers stuck in your ears, and your eyes slammed shut again.
You said paintings comma footware 70,000 years ago. BTW, I looked up footwear, and according to the leftist, evo-atheist, anti-semitic, climate alarmists over at National Geographic, supportive footwear was not invented until around 30,000 years ago. Are you just talking about insulation for one’s feet, or are you claiming supportive footwear emerged 70,000 years ago as well?
Especially when the original report had this:
Who knows, maybe there are some anti-science, Temple of Darwin fanatics who make that claim, but I have yet to see anyone produce any links...including you.
Looking in the mirror again I see.
